7 YouTube Channels to Ease the Stress of College

There comes a point in everyone's college career where you just need a break. You need some time to not have anything to do with your biology lab report or your ten-page essay for sociology. One of my favorite ways to disconnect from my school life is to hide in my bed, away from my backpack and scattered homework papers, and just watch YouTube. Here are seven of my favorite YouTube channels to keep your mind off of school amidst the stress.

1. UNHhhh


Katya Zamolodchikova and Trixie Mattel talk viewers through a wide range of topics like dating, food, and the drag scene. No topic is out of question for these two to discuss, and they do so in a hilarious fashion. They each have great wit and hospitality and these videos will make you want to stay in bed all day and binge.

2. Buzzfeed Unsolved


Buzzfeed Unsolved mixes humor with real life unsolved cases that are both less known and very popular in the horror community. Shane and Ryan travel to supposedly haunted places around the country and use ghost hunting technology to uncover their ongoing question, "are ghosts real?" In some episodes they stray away from supernatural mysteries and focus on unsolved crimes and criminals, highlighting the important facts and people from each case.

3. The Infographics Show


The Infographics show is more kid-friendly, but some episodes highlight traumatic and life scarring events, so don't be deceived! It is one of the most informative shows I've ever seen and always sends me into a never-ending Wikipedia black hole. This show covers 'what would happen if...' scenarios, true stories of survival, the lives of serial killers, and attempts to answer the questions we all have that never seem to be answered, all with unique animation making it easier to understand.

4. Billy On The Street


Billy on the Street was eventually turned into a TV show, but most of the snippets and original videos still reside on YouTube. Billy Eichner hilariously runs through the streets of New York asking pop culture questions and playing rapid-fire game show rounds with people who are least expecting it. If there's one thing about Eichner, it's that he is an open book and will confidently bring up any subject to any person. He always knows what to say and has no filter, adding to the humor of this show.

5. Safiya Nygaard


Many can agree that Safiya Nygaard's content flourished when she left Buzzfeed a few years ago. With similar styles to the videos she was making there, her content now fits her interests and lifestyle. Nygaard takes viewers on the journey to finding her wedding dress, testing out fashion from different decades, being experimental with makeup, and everything in between. It's easy to fall into binging sessions when you're watching Safiya.

6. Cut


Cut is an entertainment channel that takes the awkward out of confrontation. There are videos like "My Mom and I Take a Lie Detector Test", "Guess My Sexual Orientation", and "Gay Men Decide Who is the Gayest." The channel isn't all fun and games though, as some serious light is shone through videos of conversations with immigrants about what other people think of them and how they deal with living in America in the current political climate.

7. Jubilee


Jubilee is similar to Cut. These videos usually present a controversial topic and have people weigh in from each perspective, judgement free. There are videos about teen pregnancy from the perspective of the mom, medical professionals discussing vaccinations, and the different types of universities/colleges told by students, to name a few. Some of the things mentioned have challenged my way of thinking so I suggest you check out some of their debate videos to get your brain thinking.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
